Lady Gaga Opens Up About Mental Heath Issues

Lady Gaga has revealed she is still taking medication after feeling “traumatised” by her career’s sudden takeoff. After releasing her last pop album in 2013, she admitted suffering a period of depression that left her feeling “exhausted - like I was dying”.

Now, as she prepares to release her first pop album for three years after releasing her new single, Perfect Illusion she tells The Mirror in an exclusive interview: “I needed a moment to stabilise. When my career took off, I don’t remember anything at all. It’s like I’m traumatised. I needed time to recalibrate my soul.”

Now, despite an emotionally rocky few months that saw her “take a break” from actor fiance Taylor Kinney after five years together, the singer says she feels “good”.

She adds: “I take medication. I’m not saying I feel good because of the medication - I wouldn’t encourage young people to take anti-depressants or mood stabilisers.

I openly admit to having battled depression and anxiety and I think a lot of people do. I think it’s better when we all say: ‘Cheers!’ And ‘fess up to it.”
